Registering custom Admin class for User model breaks changing passwords

Description (last modified by aaugustin)

I am doing this:

    class UserProfileInline(admin.StackedInline):
        model = UserProfile
    class UserAdmin(admin.ModelAdmin):
        save_on_top = True
        inlines = [UserProfileInline]    , UserAdmin)

To allow me to edit UserProfiles inline with Users. However, doing this seems to break the password reset feature within django admin (not the user-facing password reset – the one on the User model itself which allows and administrator to set a user's password manually. The error is:

user object with primary key u'3/password' does not exist.

Indeed, your code doesn't work. You may have more luck if you subclass django.contrib.auth.admin.UserAdmin (I haven't tested).

Anyway, that isn't a bug in Django. Could you use the django-users mailing list or the #django IRC channel for this kind of requests? Trac is the place for reporting bugs, it isn't a support forum. Thanks :)
